This may just be a problem with my used Crystal game I bought, but the time only passes while the game is on. My Silver version time is the same as real world time. Is it supposed to be like this in Crystal? If, so, it is probably worth mentioning Mooresnakes 06:08, 27 December 2007 (UTC)Mooresnakes

It's perfectly normal. Optimatum♏Talk|Hi 06:29, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I'd imagine there's a problem with it, like the clock battery's dead or something. TTEchidnaFire echyGSDS! 06:56, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
I meant, its normal for your Crystal XD *slinks back into his hole* Optimatum♏Talk|Hi 06:57, 27 December 2007 (UTC)
Ahhhhhh . . . Thanks Mooresnakes 17:15, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

I get this problem on Gold, the time keeps changing. (--<font color=#EED55E><sup>●</sup></font>[[User:GT4GTR|<font color=#4F506D>'''GT4GTR'''</font>]] <small>[[User talk:GT4GTR|<font color=#D6282C>''/ talk /''</font>]]</small> 01:58, 14 April 2008 (UTC))


What in-game time is it when you staart playing platinum?

The in-game time matches your DS' clock. Gywall Talk 10:55, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

Evolution times

Listings for evolutions use the terms "Day" and "Night" and link to this page, but those terms are used in a different context to the more common times of day this article deals with, leading to the incorrect information being given.

While there's a small mention of this with Eevee's evolutions (making it sound like the times given are specific to eevee), hidden in a rather irrelevant paragraph, the rest of the article is rather misleading when looking for an explantion of the terms.

Perhaps the evolutionary times should be put in their own section to make this clearer and less confusing? Would also be good then if the links for evolutions be updated to jump straight to that section. --Zeal T / C 09:17, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Regarding times at which pokemon can be found in the wild

I've seen some pages relating to specific pokemon and they don't have information about what time they can be caught in the wild. Wouldn't that be useful? I didn't know where else to bring up this issue so yeah ^^. --[[User talk:Qwertyasdf|((QQ)wertyasdf 10:08, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

Daisy Oak in Gen. 3

If there's no internal clock in FR/LG what determines when Daisy will next give a grooming? Smythe 05:01, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Never mind. It seems the game uses a step counter. Smythe 19:08, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Changing DS Time

I remember hearing that in some games that use the DS's internal clock, changing the time on it will postpone all time based functions for 24 hours in the game. Is this also the case in Fourth generation pokémon games, or can one change the time with impunity? Darien Shields 10:29, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Nope, that's how it is. You can't change the time without consequences. Although I don't know if that applies if you use your game with a different DS with different time settings... --AndyPKMN 12:29, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Making a new setion for "Time specific events"

Would anyone object to me adding the contents of my Sandbox into this article? This deals with events that occur at specific times but not on specific days and are therefore missed off the days of the week article. I would plan to add this to the bottom of the page below Generation IV. If you do object please elaborate (either to say the whole concept is pointless or that it needs to be improved before it could be added). Thanking you in advance for your comments.--Beligaronia (talk) 07:32, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

I think you should. But it is incomplete; the first thing I noticed is that the officer thing is also in HG/SS. However a section like that would be quite helpful. Slrtbrtfst55 21:40, 4 April 2010 (UTC)


This page says Clair can be registered between 6am and 10pm, but the Pokégear page says 6am to 10pm. I'm changing this page on the assumption that the latter's more likely. If anyone can comfirm otherwise, feel free to change it and the other page. --Oatzy 20:16, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Um.... what? You said the same times... is one of them supposed to be 6PM, instead of AM? R.A. Hunter Blade 20:34, 8 April 2010 (UTC)
Oops. Yeah, the second was supposed to be both AM (6am to 10am).--Oatzy 22:14, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Displaying the current time in the article

It seems to me that the function that's supposed to display the current time and date (e.g. morning, Sunday) for the different generations in the last sentence of the beginning is broken. At the moment, I'm getting "In Generation II games set to UTC time, it is currently on Sunday, while in Generation IV games set to UTC time, it is currently on Sunday.", but I'm pretty sure that's not how it's supposed to work. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix it. -- Socob ( Talk | Contribs ) 00:32, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. I've made a fix. —darklordtrom 11:57, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Does this clock change based on the user's preferences? I think it would be very helpful if it did. That way, you would always know the current time in your own game, because morning, day, and night, are not necessarily the same as the real world.^_^ 12:45, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
It's linked to the server default, unfortunately. You'll just have to check the article. —darklordtrom 10:18, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Changing DS clock

I'm not sure if there is a policy against noting hacks / abuses / cheats, but here are some things which might be integrated into this article (Gen IV section):

  • Daily events (swarms, Jubilife lottery, vocabulary at Snowpoint, massages (both), berry-giving NPCs (all), Sunyshore ribbon girl, seal store refresh) all reset if the DS clock is set to 23:59 and the hour rolls over while the game is on.
  • Nocturnal pokemon can be found during any time of the (our time) day by changing the DS's clock to late (and vice versa)
    • Same works for police officers

I have not found a way to manipulate the time for berry growth, though. I don't think they are triggered by the turn of a day. In fact I believe the berry plants die if the DS clock is reset too much. -- Pokey 10:24, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

If you begin a battle in the afternoon, close your DS lid then resume the battle in the evening, will throwing a Dusk Ball be effective? Basically, when throwing a Dusk Ball does it perform a time check directly from the DS's clock or does it rely on what the time was when the battle started?--Hasfusel 14:06, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

  • No, the game will not change time mid-battle. When you start a battle, the time is set then and there and won't change until the battle ends. Afterward the time sets itself to the current time of day. I have only done this in platinum but, it should work the same way for all five games. Prof. Sternberg 00:22, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Gen IV Day-change Movie clip

I just noticed that the times shown on the Sinnoh Time-Of-Day movie clip are not consistent with the times stated above. In the clip one of the time lapses shows "8:00 am - 11:59 am" for one of the transitions. But in the segment under Generation II it says that Morning turns to day at 10:00 am. So either there is no transition between Morning and day or someone goofed. What do you guys think? Prof. Sternberg 00:42, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Misty's Number

I think there's a mistake in the HG/SS phone number secion. It says that you can get Misty's number after capturing Suicune, but I got her number before I'd even seen Suicune. I don't think capturing it is required. Fadm tyler 14:41, 14 July 2010 (UTC)

You're right, and I changed it because I didn't have a pokemon that knew cut on route 42. I went back after 16 badges.ShoutingRyan 16:36, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Nighttime Music in Gen II

Is it just me, or does the wild Pokémon battle music sound different at nighttime in the Gen II games? --FiMbUlWiNtEr2O|2 00:36, 15 June 2011 (UTC)
